Pretty awesome to see VGchartz releasing the sales data for the consoles just 1 week out, it's crazy to think that there was a time when the numbers were 3-6 months delayed... it's a damn shame however that the majority of the people who were complaining that the delays were so severe back then... are all gone now.

On the topic of the sales though, it's pretty locked in that X1 sales each week are 150k below the Switch, which means next week could see a boost of the X1 up to the PS4 figures! however it does mean that if the Switch were to suffer a sub 150k week... that people will be returning X1's to shops faster than they're selling to create the first ever negative sales week on here lol.

It is nice to see people happy with the hardware figures being more up to date than they used to be. I do remember they were months behind as well. It was nice IOI handed over the reins to the team, so we can now keep things more up to date. 

Im guessing removing the weekly games sales have ease the work?

Aye Trunks it's really great to see, so often I would be talking with friends about console sales and bring up here or numbers of things going on with how popular the PS4 was to the X1 but then show a picture of the sales data from a few months back and would always get the same thing of "well... that was back in Feb what are they like now? the X1 could be doing better" but having sales based in the last week means you can directly talk about sales and have numbers here to back up how each machine is doing right now. Makes this site so much easier to recommend to use for things like this however.... here in Ireland we still get some crazy bad adverts which means mobile browsing just isn't a thing anyone can really do here, there are videos which play and have no means to close the window without clicking into it and then going to the website of the advertiser, knowing how bad they are it makes it a caveat for telling people to come here, always has to be (but not on a mobile phone).

It's a little bit of a shame that software sales now only really work as a retrospective or by going on the press releases of the publishers but those things are often just fluff pieces such as activision not being happy with 10million sales for their latest call of duty or a tiny indie publisher having creamed their pants at making it to 200k sales. They're cool articles but really expectations have to reach either super high or super low to draw out a statement regarding software sales.

as others echoed in here, Great work though! I would tip my hat if I was wearing one but it's 30degree's and it's lucky if you find me wearing pants!

Not bad. 300K next week ?

The total FY2019 projection is becoming more and more realistic (or less and less unrealistic...)

I see this in each weeks sales releases and I gotta say... I would just be taking a wild guess as to what it's about? You have a graph and timelines but nothing in this post or any of the weekly ones says what the graph is about.

Is it the lifetimes sales of the Switch? for a while I thought it was meant to represent the 3 systems, but I think it's the Switches 3 years on the market, sorry but a graph and posts with no reference to any console or manufacturer is missing a key piece of information I feel.

Maybe I'm just a derp.... but there are plenty of derps on the Internet! Might help if you added the system name to your awesome weekly graphs?

Noted. I will improve it for the next time. Dense views of information like that always seems perfectly clear for the one who creates it obviously...

I am still too much autistic. Accept my apologizes.

I agree it is a shame about the software figures, however, it was long overdue as digital sales at this point are the majority of sales for games. We have no way of tracking digital figures and the percentage of digital figures varies by platform and by game.

No worries man, like I said it could just be me missing the point, but I seen the graph a couple of times but based on you saying about the forecast this week I think I figured what it meant. Really cool to see the absolutely steady stream of sales each year, Nintendo had a perfect plan of when and where to drop their exclusives to keep attention up around the year.

I think for me the Switch has passed over the GC and X360 now into my favourite console of all times, and jointly also my favourite handheld in one move Nintendo have done me a solid in two areas of gaming. can't wait to see their hardware revisions for this machine.

I had no idea that the sales of the Nintendo Switch were to be so stable, I expected something more at the level of the Wii.
A rapid rise and record sales, but would not believe that they were stable after the third year. But it was not like that, the Switch broke a few records too, but his sales are stable and up, in a gradual and steady evolution, which seems to show a firm and solid console in the market.

The following games will only increase success even more, I believe that the switch did not reach its peak of sales in one semester, I think it should happen by the end of the third and fourth year.

The next 17 months are gonna be a looong crawl for Xbox

It'll be intriguing to see where its baseline ends up later this year and next, outside of the holidays.

On the flipside, with Mario Maker 2 out with the next weekly numbers and Fire Emblem four weeks after that, Switch should stay above 200k a week for some time to come.

  1. Why would switch lose the top spot when the other consoles also aren't getting any big game releases.
  2. I think it's fair to say that there s no way (as it should be expected) that in its 6th year the PS4 should be outselling the switch at $299. Yes, it needs a price drop. That it's even still keeping the gap respectable is an achievement.
  3. And why is everyone forgetting that the PS4/XB1 are currently almost years old? If you guys really want to compare sales... compare them to those consoles 3rd years on the market.

Because PS4 gets big games more regularly than Switch does, basically. Between Smash and Mario Maker 2, a gap of nearly 7 month, Switch had no system-selling games. Hence I thought it'd momentum would suffer more than it has.

What big games did the PS4 get after February that the Switch didn't get?

Haven't been keeping track tbh, though I guess it did get CTR this week. Guerss I just got used to PS4 getting AAA games constantly and Switch not.
